My compliments to the chef of this fantastic Indian restaurant. It's hard to believe such a great restaurant is in this little college town. The Mint chicken kabab, chicken manpasand, black pepper shrimp and anything tandoori are so tasty. And you gotta get some naan bread to go with your meal. All of this as well as the wine list are very reasonably priced, too. You can order anything as spicy as you want it: from mild to the sweat inducing "Indian hot".

We were actually looking for another place to eat when we stumbled across this jewel of a place! What a great find!!! We were amazed to walk into such an upscale interior of an Indian food place in a college town. Granted it is a little off the main drag, but actually real easy to find once you know it's there. Another bonus, they have our favorite - lamb - on their lunch buffet, everyday! That is something we have not experienced in most Indian restaurants. This is a quality place with quality food & atmosphere at a reasonable price, too. Do not miss this one!

First, I ate at the lunch banquet. That may well be different from a la carte. Food on banquet had several cold dishes that should have been hot. There were a couple of good dishes, but quite a few that were just mediocre and bland.
There are much better restaurants in Boone; I have eaten at several really good Indian Restaurants in DC, Phoenix, and Chicago.

I'd give Mint 3.5 stars if it were possible. That when judging it against all restaurants in general. Even in judging it against the multitude of other Indian restaurants we've eaten in, Mint is just slightly above average. The food, service and atmosphere were all good. On the whole, however, the good was not as flavorful as we'd hoped. It just didn't "pop" like we expect Indian food to. We did enjoy it enough that we will go back. I have some concerns that two of us got sick the same day that two other reviewers did. Hopefully this was an isolated situation.
